The Amanda Knox verdict for her retrial is in, and on Jan. 30 MSN News shared the details. The appeals court in Florence, Italy deliberated into the evening, and the decision has come back for both Knox and Raffaele Sollecito.

Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox have been found guilty once again for the murder of Meredith Kercher. This is the third trial for both Sollecito and Knox in this case. During the initial trial they were found guilty, then a second trial set them free. The Italian court decided to try the case yet again, though this time Knox stayed away from Italy for the duration of the trial. Sollecito was in Italy for much of the trial, but he was not always in the courtroom.

The Italian court has sentenced Amanda Knox to 28 years, 6 months for the murder and Raffaele Sollecito received a sentence of 25 years. What happens next? This is likely to take more twists and turns, as of course Knox and her legal team can appeal the latest verdict. Should the decision be upheld, will Knox face extradition? That much remains to be seen. Stay tuned for further details as they are made available regarding the Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox guilty verdicts.
